Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: great movie

I saw HT around the end of the first Reagan term, and he played the movie before he spoke . He was more than willing to play the role of "Hunter Thompson", for his fans . He was at times, full of shit, and at other very insightful ( sometimes both at the same time ). I always felt he became so bitter, that he lost some of his touch , but I still miss him .
A friend of mine, back in the 80's worked on the UCLA newspaper, "The Daily Bruin" . he went snuck backstage to interview him . Hunter snapped at him "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING HERE !?", he fired back "The same thing you would be doing " . He must have like that , as he gave him the interview .
